. and former candidate santorum is here. the election outcome raising questions about the future of his party, the republican party. what does the g.o.p. have to do now? hear from senator santorum, coming up. a hybrid? most are just no fun to drive. now, here's one that will make you feel alive. meet the five-passenger ford c-max hybrid. c-max says ha. c-max says wheeee. which is what you get, don't you see? cause c-max has lots more horsepower than prius v, a hybrid that c-max also bests in mpg. say hi to the all-new 47 combined mpg c-max hybrid. no, no, no, stop! humans -- one day, we're coming up with the theory of relativity, the next... stop, stop, stop! my car! not so much. but that's okay. you're covered with great ideas like optional better car replacemen from liberty mutual insurance. total your car, and we give you the money to buy one a model year newer. learn about it at libertymutual.com. liberty mutual insurance. responsibility -- what's your policy? >> greta: the first time, iranian jets tried to shoot down a u.s. drone, that the pentagon says was in international waters. but w
, mike huckabee or rick santorum and none of them can win. >> let me play real quick, a.b., this conversation between ann coulter and laura ingram, again, trying to in their minds figure out what happened with governor romney. let me play it. >> if mitt romney cannot win in this economy, then the tips point habben reached. we have more takers than makers and it's over. >> i'm sorry, this is going to sound cruel, but some of the times i didn't like he was connecting with the material. i think you have to connect with the material. maybe it's people who have actually been in the trenches for decades, not just someone that was a success in business. >> in the trenches like a community organizer and not just a business guy? i mean, what is -- we in some kind of topsy-turvy world now suddenly his business background was nothing? >> there's a lot of rationalizing going on on the republican side because the win was much bigger than -- if they thought that obama was going to beat romney, that he would eek it out and they did not expect 303 and possible 332 electoral vote fs obam
huckabee and rick santorum and others who are thinking about running for president next time. people are going to have to choose up sides and if president obama is leading those negotiations it's going to be an obama deal so for a lot of republicans in congress and around the country they're against it no matter what. they don't care what percentage of the vote he got, how big his mandate is, they'll be against it because it will have revenue in it, new revenue, and they'll be against it. >> rose: because it is -- that vote is influenced by how they perceive the battle they are making for the control of the republican party? >> and they don't like him and anything he stands for and his victory won't change that. and choosing up sides there will tell you a lot about how people are going to approach going forward the next four years of an obama presidency and the fight to redefine the republican party. >> it's going to be -- i mean, regardless of what happens tomorrow i think we come out of this pretty much where we went into it and that's what makes it very disheartening, frankly, as
of mitt romney versus his primary supporter rick santorum. evangelical voters weren't as supportive of mitt romney early on. there were class divides. we're looking at the demographic data because that's one thing the president's team has made clear they're relying on to turn out the vote for him, the demographic groups that tend to back him. younger voters, african-americans, younger women. they do really inform the types of people you're out to get at the polls. sometimes, for example, there's the health care... 50% of voters favored repealing some or all of obama care. that shows it's a divided country but that doesn't suggest who will win tonight. >> i think we ought to em fa that these exit polls have been done for many years. we have had trouble in some years. i don't expect there will be trouble this year. those of us in this business that have been doing it understand that we have to treat these very tentative lie and at the end of the day people are voting to elect the next wt and the next congress. we're really going to wait for those results to go in. these give us a litt
have no idea how any other american useles birth control with the acception of rick santorum. and i don't know why he wants to talk about it or why he thinks it's a national security issue and why the republican party is doubling down on issues like this. the prolife position is a serious moral position and i think the fact that on this issue the country is closely divided and there is no toveed suggest that being prolife is a disqualifier to being elected president of the united states. but surely we must understand the difference that being prolife doesn't default you into anti-contraception and women in this country particularly young women don't want to here contraception leckchures from white over 50,. we are the limited government party. and we see too often from the leadership in washington a version of big government conservatism where the government is peering through the window into matters of sexual orientation, into life style choices and issues like continue tra acception. so there is an intellectle disdense when people are talking about tyranny and we stand on the precipic
, moderates versus conservatives? >> i thought to mention rick santorum. we talked about, most of them are actually more -- and also given where the current debate is this morning, are more in the moderate portion of the party. and they will be coming forward in various ways saying i have the answer to this question which is the hispanic question. also it's the question with women. how to reach out to those voters and speak to them in an effective way. >> it's going to be a determination of what counts as moderate in the republican party. if it means something that's more accommodationist on immigration, it's not going to be something that's dramatically more accommodationist on taxes. but it might be something a million or above. on fiscal issues the republican party is not going to abandon moorings, pro-life definition. it simply can't. no nominee i can see in the foreseeable future is going to either. those things will have to be merged in a way that a post-reagan, post-bush and a new definition of the party. one of the things that held mitt romney back, he did not take an it. we lo
a super pac which would have been running against rick santorum. if your hillary clinton or andrew cuomo, not saying these people are running, but jeb bush, marco rubio, pick your candidate -- it is not about could we win iowa, could we build a grass-roots campaign? what is your platform? not saying this candidates will not have to do that, but if you do not have a super pac game that is huge you are not going to be able to win your party mination. that is it really disturbing trend. >> in anyiven competitive congressional campaign in the country the cdidate committee, the actual campaign of the guy running for office or the woman running for office, has the smallest voice in the race with regard to the outside groups. it is increasingly true in senate races. it is increasingly true ev in the presidential race. a brief follow up to that -- to talk about the senate and congressional and presidential races. is this kind of technique that was owned and endorsed by the supreme court and so on in this election, presidential election, going to have any effect on issue campaigns as well? are we
. martha roy. rick santorum. aaron shock. jim tallant. john thune. pat tome. scott walker. mike turner. steve chabis. from the great state of ohio, mary tyalor. mary taylor. >> four more years! four more years! >> are we ready to do everything we can in ohio 2 elective mitt romney and paul ryan, the next president and vice president of the united states? [cheers and applause] as always, a great crowd of the intro west chester, ohio. this is outstanding. i have done a lot of great rallies over the last couple of weeks. i have three simple reasons. i would like to go through them quickly with you. president obama comes to ohio and likes to take credit for getting our state to back on track. we know that is not true. it is the work governor kasich and i have done with to balance the budget and get our state back on track. but we did not raise taxes. we cut taxes. here is my second reason. this one is personal for me. my youngest son is 18 years old and he voted for the first time this year in a presidential election. a couple of weeks ago his friends were gathering at our house. i decided
, newt gingrich and rick santorum that gave a lot of ammunition to the obama team when they went after mr. romney's time at bain capital and the obama team kept that theme going. >> they won, the president won and should be congratulated and the team should be congratulated because they put together a strategy and tactics that won a race that was very difficult to win but i think they're going to be governing and presiding over an incredibly divided country and unless they figure out a way to unify that and deal with that it's going to be very difficult. >> i got to bring this question to george will. correct me if i'm wrong, george. right after president obama was elected four years ago, went to your house, didn't he, for a dinner party reaching out to conservatives, that was supposed to be the promise of his first term, a person who could heal the division in this country. clearly though he's been re-elected not all that healing has happened. what went wrong in that relation between the president and who is to blame and how much on each side. >> books are already being written about wha
. the guys in iowa, rick santorum, the folks in south carolina who gave the primary to newt gingrich. beyond that, i feel -- ever since george of the bush's second term, there has been an anti-establishment reaction within the republican party. they were embarrassed and angry with the bush administration. conservatism turned out to not be what they wanted. they wanted small government conservatism. i think everybody loves to many people into the tea party caldron. but you get the types that are determined to come here and do something against leadership. in ohio, he mentioned he likes the trappings of office, if you will. he mentioned to me, how much leadership can you exert? how much control can you exert over your own conference? given the freshmen. and he said to be, it is not the freshmen. he said it is some of the older members. he did not say who. i would have preferred if he did. that is those who are trying to have perfect scores on these ratings. they are the problem. because anti-leadership is good for them. and it is not necessarily good for the institution as a whole. i think we
. you can't tell me that rick santorum or newt gingrich, as much as i like them, would have donnie better. okay? romney was always i'm a redskins fan, a washington redskins fan. he is like donovan mcnabb. he is not the quartback of the future. rg3 is, right? i think it's the same way with the republicans. mitt romneying, they were hoping he could get them a win, but he was never the candidate of the future, and i think that if you look at not just marco rubio, but bobby jindahl, and i would have said chris christie two weeks ago, but today i probably won't. there are strong candidates out there, young republicans, who can appeal to a much wider audience and be inspiring and inspirational. >> i want to bring you into the conversation here. first of all, let's just lay out what things have looked like for the last eight years, and president bush in covering him, he really did a lot of outreach with the hispanic -- 31% latino vote, and mitt romney 27%. that was compared to president obama's 71% here, so matt talks about marco rubio and some of the others in the party. is that the way
. as soon as it won the nomination, i think it was one rick santorum dropped out, they decided to focus on discipline. they thought any topic that was not on obama are the economy was not worth a dollar spent. their view. that is almost a word-for-word quote from their strategists. is spent entirely until just before the convention on banging on the economy and the obama. to a certain extent, we have an incumbent president running for re-election, it is a referendum on the incumbent. it is a referendum on the economy. but the thing about it is, you have got to define your own candidate in a way and a positive way biographical advertising and testimonial advertising. you need to make them a real, three-dimensional, trustworthy individual. think of the boy scouts. that is a general idea. that is a general thing you want to get across. you need to apply that to your candidate in order to protect them from the slime that is coming. in the romney campaign, they adamantly chose not to do that. the obama campaign, give credit where credit is due, they saw their opponent was undefined. i sat wi
santorum was the candidate, and michele bachmann as well. it was just so up and down, you know, that's part of the way the democrat system works going state by state and fight for it. there's benefit to that. every voter in new hampshire got a perm visit with mitt romney, michele bachmann, herman cain, it forces you to do that, but in a primary, you wouldn't have the opportunity as a voter or the candidates wouldn't have that challenge to have to be in the town hall meetings and go through it. there's good and bad parts of it, but, yeah, it does create some challenges, no question. >> on the super packs on the republican side spent over $700 million, something like that, and it looks like, you know, aachieved almost nothing in terms of electing candidates that they targeted so where does that leave that system, and what does that say about anything? it's a pretty stunning outcome. with that much money with no return on it. >> a couple thoughts, one, you help me op this because there's an editorial about it or somebody wrote it for him, he's too important to write his own anymore. [laughter]
with rick santorum for supremacy in that realm. rand paul, perhaps. the tea party was found by the ron and rand paul real conservatives, the guys who were disgusted at how george w. bush spent money before it devolved into people blaming obama for what bush did. then you'll have the moderates. i think jeb bush will be the leader in. guy who will say i'm the electable moderate. we tried going to the right wing way. ronald reagan wouldn't fit in with them. chris christie of course will be a part of that camp. >> immigration is going to be a real good test case. you'll see this divide between that brand of moderate republicans saying that immigration is an economic issue. that we need to bring in people with the skills that america needs to power the economy and on the other side, folks like steve king and michele bachmann who use those emotional appeals of they'll take your jobs, they're from another country and so on and so forth. how that plays out will be key to what the party becomes. >> john: you can't wi
% of voters in the republican iowa caucuses identified themselves as evangelicals and supported rick santorum over mitt romney. many uneasy over romney's moderate pass on abortion and his mormon faith. >> i think it concerns anybody who considers them an evangelical christian. >> reporter: that was then. you previously said the romney campaign, not social conservatives -- >> i think he's proved himself he has tried to make that outreach to social conservatives as well as economic conservatives. he's done a good job here in iowa. >> reporter: well, iowa's evangelical voters seem to be moving into mitt romney's camp here in traditional democratic dubuque the president may face more of a challenge. the catholic voters are split over issues like abortion, funding for contraception and the government's role in providing for the poor. >> the life issues which many catholics, most catholics hold dear and central to their faith, but then there's this belief that remains that the democratic party somehow cares for the poor better. i think it comes down to that tension. >> reporter: how big a role does
in the santorum campaign. the fourth and final speaker will be brian darling, who is here at heritage afor the time being. he is a senior fellow at government studies. he mahler -- monitors political events and assess this impact on policy decisions on things in general. he is a prolific media presence in talk radio, cable tv, and he has columns in other publications. he is one of the most widely quoted analysts here at heritage. he served previously in the senate for senators martinez, and two other senators. we will start off with james and move on down. thank you. >> good afternoon. please bear with me. i am slowly getting my voice back. first, thank you to heritage, to mike, and my fellow panelists. i thought i would start off with two quotations which might help us free and the discretion that we will have and at least my comments, and then i will lay out what i think is a way to view this issue we're discussing today, a question of obstruction and in the contemporary senate. the first quotation is from a book, from william riechart. you can convince other people to persuade you and t
